Having Facebook App cashes on Windows Phone? It could be the date

imagePlaffo.com reports that many Windows Phone Facebook users are complaining that the app is crashing on start-up today with the error "String was not  Recognized As DataTime".

It seems something about the 1st March is not tickling the app right, but Plaffo noted that changing the phone’s region settings to "United States (English)” seems to resolve the issue.

Facebook Engineering Director Thinks Windows Isn’t Down For The Count, Expects Growth In Market Share

New Windows Phone Logo

In an interview to VentureBeat, Facebook’s Engineering Director Jocelyn Goldfein spoke about Facebook’s future in the mobile world, their mistakes, the learning  they had from them and more. Facebook is one of the few companies that have transformed itself from a desktop/web company to a mobile focused company over the past few years. When she was asked about what she is looking forward to in the next few years, in terms of development, she answered the following,

Goldfein: I think it’s going to be more diverse. For sure, tablets right now are growing like phones were growing three years ago, maybe even faster. I think there’s so much more we can do to deliver tablet-based experiences that are amazing……

Wearables are going to come along, and you’re going to want to see Facebook on those. I actually think Windows isn’t down for the count; I think we’ll see Microsoft growing in share.

While Facebook’s engineering director is confident of Microsoft’s Windows platform, I don’t think all of her’s peers think the same way. For example, even after 3 years of Windows Phone’s launch, Facebook is yet to launch its own official Facebook app in Windows Phone Store. The current Facebook app version in Windows Phone Store is being developed by Microsoft and it is much inferior to iOS and Android versions. I hope Facebook will take over the development of Facebook Blue app with the release of Windows Phone Blue in the coming months.
